My name is Chantal, and I'm here to make something beautiful. To quote Edgar Allan Poe:
"When, indeed, men speak of Beauty, they mean, precisely, not a quality, as is supposed, but an effect - they refer, in short, just to that intense and pure elevation of soul - not of intellect, or of heart.
I want to elevate the soul. Be it something weird, something unusual, something unique, something sexy, something awe-inspiring - I want to be a part of something beautiful, I want to help create it. If you share this mindset, if you have the talent, if you have the drive to work hard to achieve this goal - please do contact me. I will pour my heart into it if you promise to do the same.
In regards to actually working with me - I'm not a girl on a power trip. I have little interest in being told I'm pretty, I'm here to get a job done and make beautiful work of it, beauty being relative. I'm always relaxed, have an easy smile and contrary to the stiff way I may type, I would say I'm (I hope!) fun to work with, though straightforward. I have no inhibitions, especially not in regards to my body.
*Do please note however, that I will not do nudes nor partial nudes.
Despite this, I will do my best to work with you to create something of the highest quality, be that quality sexy or strange, beautiful or just out-there. Glamour, lingerie and, most importantly, creative modeling are what interest me most.
I live in Adelaide, Australia, though I make frequent and often extended trips to the US as my boyfriend lives there. Thus I'm most often located in Ohio but I do travel around the country often. I have few commitments and can easily arrange a shoot to suit your times and dates.
I greatly respect a photographer who takes the time to plan out a shoot. This means deciding on outfits, accessories, makeup, location, colours, hair, the whole shebang, before we face each other down through the camera. I will of course work with you to make this all come together, but I ask that you have something in mind before we shoot, as the extra effort will always pay off with greater results.
I encourage that a makeup artist be available on all shoots.
Please do note that I will always be professional, courteous and on time (or at the very least, let you know in advance if I may be late). I ask that you do the same!
Information you may need to know:
-I have a very clear complexion
-I have my ears pierced
-I have my tongue pierced
-I love animals, especially the creepy crawly kinds (snakes and spiders make me smile)
-My body is very flexible
$40 per hour fashion/beauty/swimwear
$60 per hour lingerie. I will not shoot nudes or implied.
Flat day rate can be negotiated at a significant discount.
I pay for my own travel. I will not agree to shoot unless you can retain a makeup artist - this is to ensure you get the best shots for your money. I can recommend you my preferred makeup artists if you desire.
Thanks for your time and interest.
